Title:
Howard Brooke with his Ambulance, Hit by a Tank
Date:
1943-1944 Winter
Description:

Howard Brooke (standing facing camera with hat) had been evacuating patients at night without lights on a winding narrow mountain road near Ortona. He collided with a Sherman tank going in for an attack, also without lights. The tank mashed the engine down, rode on it up and over Brooke’s head and rolled the ambulance over the bank. He wasn’t injured. He could escape through the canvas roof, which was replacing the original metal roof, which had been crumpled by a previous roll-over. Other AFS drivers are here busily scrounging needed parts for their own ambulances.

Location: Near Ortona.
